‘Leaders are not born but are made by experience in life.’ At Lancers, the Student Council and the leadership programme helps develop strong leadership skills by giving students a dedicated space to share their opinions in the running of the school.
Members of the prestigious Student Council are drawn through fiercely contested elections, who then go on to receiving leadership training and are given the opportunity to work with support staff and students.
The main goal of the Student Council is to make the Lancers experience for other students better. Suggestions from students are taken into account and presented to the school staff regularly. For instance, the Food Committee Head is responsible for checking the cafeteria menu and sharing suggestions taken from other students.
The Student Council members are given the responsibility of looking after student welfare and planning of interesting activities such as Sports Day, Teachers’ Day assembly, Diwali Celebrations, Christmas Celebrations, Yearbook and many more.
The Investiture ceremony is a prestigious event in every school’s calendar. To inculcate the leadership qualities in the students and to give them a feel of the administrative body, a school prefectural is formed. The school formally entrusts responsibilities on the ‘young leaders’, who donning the mantle of accountability also pledge to bestow their duties honestly, sincerely and to the best of their abilities, during this ceremony.
The Investiture Ceremony for the academic year 2019-20 is being held on the 23rd of August 2019. Students are required to fill the nomination forms provided.
